The ones I remeber seeing when I was younger all had the same color scheme back then, medium to dark brown (rust). :lol:

Looks like a New 4 Cultivator with Number 241 gang equipment. Looks pretty complete except for the horse hitch (eveners etc.). Wendell's book lists them from 1914 to 1924, but that isn't correct. They were still in the catalog at least to 1940.

I would paint it as described in paint decisions 31 and 36, and look at 37 as a reference for anything that is unclear from the others. That would have applied from 1927 on. If you want colors from earlier, you would have to look at advertising posters for an approximation.

I probably should have said "equalizer bar and singletrees" to use proper horsie terminology. It is where the horses attach to pull it.

AH
Thanks for the info
I had that manual on my watch list
will most likely purchase it
If I have to make some parts it will be easier to manufacture from a photo
Thanks again
